It says that when the legendary composer Enio Morricone heard one of the wonderful pieces by the composer Alexander Zatsepin, he said: “His music is better, but mine is more expensive!” Fortunately, the value of music is measured not by monetary signs, but by the number of listeners who are in love with it. And in this sense, Alexander Zatsepin is not far behind Enio Morricone, and maybe even ahead of him.
